As the lead creative on the LDS Pamphlets app for the Missionary Department, John Perl has worked under my direction as a media producer and production designer since March of 2014.

 He has displayed extraordinary focus and a dedicated work ethic throughout the duration of this project. His responsibilities have included photo retouching, intellectual property, and publishing digital content using Adobe AEM Mobile. He is always on-time to work, provides reliable results and is a team player. He goes beyond his responsibilities to ensure the success of the project. He is also fun and a pleasure to work with.

I would highly recommend John Perl and would consider him a valuable team player who delivers effort and consistent results.
